Creamy Vegan Butterscotch Pie

Family Friendly Plant-Based Recipes

butterscotch pie

I first tried this recipe at the Black Hills Health and Education Center.  A lifestyle center where people come to learn how to make lifestyle changes that reverse disease. When I was there I saw dramatic changes and miracles worked in peoples lives.  Reversing diabetes, heart disease loosing weight and people quitting smoking.
This rich and creamy pie is free from refined sugars and fats and soooo good.It gets its “sweet” from dates and really It satisfies the craving for dessert. It is hard to believe that this is a vegan recipe but what’s more it is gluten free and soy free too! I use a simple graham cracker or gluten free granola crust.

Butterscotch Pie Filling

  • 1 cup cashews, raw
  • 1 1/2 cups dates, chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon butterscotch flavoring
  • 4 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar (optional, if you have a real sweet tooth!)


  • 1/2 cup pecans, toasted
  • 1/2 cup carob chips, barley malt sweetened, or dairy free chocolate chips

1. Blend cashews with 2 cups of water until smooth.

2. Add remaining pie filling ingredients except water, and blend until very smooth and creamy. Pour mixture into a saucepan.

3. Put last cup of water into the blender and blend. (This step cleans out your blender, and you don’t end up wasting any of the yummy pie filling!) Pour into saucepan with the first blended mixture and cook over medium heat until thick, stirring constantly.

4. Pour into pre-baked pie crust. (Easy Pie Crust (P?) works the best. Chill until filling is set.

5. When ready to serve, sprinkle with toasted pecans and carob chips or carob curls.

TIP: To serve lots of people, you can make this into bars by pressing the crust into a 9 x 13 pan instead of a pie plate.

TIP: If you don’t have cashews or have a nut allergy, leave out the cashews and replace 1 cup of water with 1 cup of soy creamer.butterscotch pie detail 1
